I seldom seem to find time to paint, apart from various challenges, but as I enjoyed 'thinking outside the box' for this month's Different Strokes (hosted by Idylbrush) I thought I'd post in its own thread for a change!:)
Based on some fake Clarice Cliff pottery I have (here's (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Clarice+Cliff&client=firefox-a&hs=CDR&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=nts&tbm=isch&imgil=07Kf4yC3o_jOHM%253A%253BAlA388snsJNPFM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fen.wikipedia.org%25252Fwiki%25252FClarice_Cliff&source=iu&pf=m&fir=07Kf4yC3o_jOHM%253A%252CAlA388snsJNPFM%252C_&usg=__U3hJMZmMVIxQDUuYUEP0AjNIyJs%3D&biw=1536&bih=701&dpr=1.25#facrc=0%3Bclarice%20cliff%20paintings&imgdii=_&imgrc=_) her real stuff!) I thought I'd set the group in a CC 'landscape'.

It's approx 10x14" on a piece of mountboard - the colours are bright but not necessarily smooth!

Thanks Colleen:)

Thank you for popping in Doug - much appreciate it.:D

That is beautifully done! I like how you managed to get the glazed look of the colors, while keeping them bright and defined, not an easy task.

Thank you both - and why not join us in next month's Different Strokes if you use acrylics? It's fun and the camaraderie is good!:)

Another beautiful peace Maureen.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

Not only is it a beautiful, colorful work, it is appealing to the eye and captured the essence of the pottery extremely well. I think it spectacular.

Maureen, I am an absolute Clarice Cliff fan. I have one or two items but stopped collecting and sold quite a lot when we moved to Germany. It has become very expensive so hang on to yours for dear life. I loved this in the challenge and looking at it again, you have done a great job on the colours.

I love Clarice Cliff's pottery! Your painting is lovely, the colors are spot on and I like the graphic quality to boot.
